Travel Blogs from Rome
Second day in Rome and made a wish at midnight in the Trevi Fountain! Walking around the corner and seeing this work of art was breathtaking. Coffee gelato and friends was the perfect start to my European adventure. I plan to make the trip back on my birthday to welcome me into the roaring 20s.
The coliseum was beyond amazing! Even without a tour guide ...
... It was just huge and full of awesome statues in front of it, on top of it, in fact they seemed everywhere! I marvelled at this and told Jo she had to see it! We took some lovely photos here and explored around it best we could given time was short. Soon though it was time to say farewell to Rome, a truly amazing city with a lot more to offer than we saw. We reluctantly slipped into our business class seats in the 220mph train and headed back to ...
... during the reign of Domitian (81–96). These three emperors are known as the Flavian dynasty, and the amphitheatre was named in Latin for its association with their family name (Flavius).The Colosseum could hold, it is estimated, between 50,000 and 80,000 spectators, and was used ...
... and the beautiful detail of the vases, bowls etc. The items pictured dating back to about 500-650 BC. In the Egyptian wing the vases around the mummy dated back to 3rd millennium BC!!! A glass vase that I have pictured was about 500BC as well and it had pearlescent colouring. The bronze work which was soldered dated around 450-550 BC. Wow.
Vernon loved the map wing, which our guide likened to the the first National Geographic. This is where decisions ...
... as it has been worn smooth. We watched for a while as many tourists who thought they knew about statue posed for photo with it....and then rubbed the wrong foot.
We walked 5 minutes to the entrance to the Vatican Museums, and had to line up for about 15 minutes. Tickets were super cheap for us, the guy gave us a wink and then gave me a half price student ticket! We decided not to do the audio guide and just follow the tour in the Lonely Planet. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Forte Rome
Great place to stay
I found this place by chance in the Lonely Planet and I couldn't have picked a better place if I know what I was booking ! Excellent place to stay. Very good value and extremely good location. All the staff were very helpful in booking trips for us. Would definitely come back here
Good location & value!
Great location just steps away from the Spanish Steps! On a quiet, lovely street. Very friendly and helpful staff. Rooms were good size with very nice bathrooms...shower and jacuzzi in some! Breakfast was very good. Front desk very helpful in making recommendations for dinner. They called ahead for us at some nice local places where we were treated very well when we said we were from the Hotel Forte. Would stay there again!
Great Hotel - Great location
Good hotel - The only reason i can think this is a 3* is because it does not have a pool or a permanent Bar. So what - if you want a nice clean hotel and about 10 minutes from the Spanish Steps this is ideal. I would definately reccomend this hotel and the staff are very friendly. The only wierd thing i found is that we could not control the in room A/c, because i guess it was centrally set. The room had a room safe and a small portable tv.. which we could not find a remote control.. But hey who cares! Sightseeing in Rome is superb. Make sure you go to Giolloties the top ice cream shop nearby.
Visit the nearby official "Ferrari" shop, and eat loads of Pizza.
Stay at Hotel Forte
Returning to Hotel Forte in May 2004 found the same charmingly beautiful location on via Margutta as remembered from the previous summer. The staff of this hotel goes out of it's way to provide the most comfortable accommodations for their guests. The hotel, situated on a historic quiet street between Popolo and the Spanish Steps, is a treasure. A short walk to the metro, in an area filled with history, shops, and restaurants, you will marvel at every detail of life in Centro Storico. I look forward to visiting Rome again, and when I do my hotel of choice will be Hotel Forte.
